We present recent results on heavy flavor jet production in association with weak vector bosons using proton-antiproton collision data collected with the D0 detector at center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV. Studies of these processes provide tests of perturbative QCD predictions and non-perturbative effects. They are also important backgrounds to many precision SM measurements as well as searches for new physics. Measurements of W+b/c-jet production cross-sections and the ratio of cross-sections, $\sigma$(Z+2b-jet)/$\sigma$(Z+2jets), are presented.
